In theory, limiting the foods
you can eat should be a guarantee of losing pounds, also because vegan food has
more fiber and more water content.
A diet based on
vegetables, fruits and others can be very satiating.
There are also several
studies that have proven that, among people who set out to lose weight,
vegetarians and vegans lost more weight and more quickly than carnivores.
be careful, because it also has its drawbacks...
Do you lose weight on a vegan diet?
Weight loss is one of the star nutrition themes for myths, stair landing landings, and magic solutions.
It seems that everyone has the solution to a terribly complex question, in which the professionals only know with certainty one thing: that the approach based only on the caloric balance is useless.
When we add to this equation that the person who needs to lose weight also has a vegan diet, it is common to be told, even from the health sector, that "it is not possible to lose weight because their diet has too many carbohydrates."
According to that theory, the vegetarian population should have higher rates of overweight and obesity than the general population, right? But the opposite is true, vegetarians have on average a lower BMI and a lower prevalence of obesity than the general population. Wow!
In addition, following the statement outlined above, it is also assumed that the only diets suitable for weight loss are lowcarb or low in carbohydrates.
That is not correct either, but if it were, there is no greater problem to guide a vegan diet not only lowcarb, but even ketogenic.
So, as we see, ensuring that a vegan diet presents more difficulties than a traditional diet when you need to lose weight, simply is not true.
